They say there is a place in Orlando where you can camp without being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
They say you can roast marshmallows by a fire and sing campfire songs without worrying about black bears or other creatures that go bump in the night.
They say there is a place in Central Florida where you can spend the night feeling like an honest to goodness pioneer, without waking up in a tent that’s turned into a sauna by 7 in the morning.
Where could such a place exists?
Disney, of course.
Disney’s Fort Wildnerness Resort is like camping without any of the nastiness of camping. Secluded cabins allow guests to enjoy the surrounding forests and the modern amenities we’ve become unable to live without.
This is the perfect place to expose children to the camping experience while avoiding having to sleep on the ground. Enjoy nightly campfire songs with Disney characters, fishing, horseback riding, and bike riding. And you can also swim in the pools, play video games in the arcade, and play tennis on the courts – bet you can’t get that at your local campground!
Of course, this naturally rustic experience is going to cost you a tiny bit more than a night of tent living – about $300, in fact.
But think of how much you’ll save in bug spray!
